What does everyone in the modern world need to know? Renowned psychologist Jordan B. Peterson's answer to this most difficult of questions uniquely combines the hard-won truths of ancient tradition with the stunning revelations of cutting-edge scientific research.
Humorous, surprising and informative, Dr. Peterson tells us why skateboarding boys and girls must be left alone, what terrible fate awaits those who criticize too easily, and why you should always pet a cat when you meet one on the street. What does the nervous system of the lowly lobster have to tell us about standing up straight (with our shoulders back) and about success in life? Why did ancient Egyptians worship the capacity to pay careful attention as the highest of gods? What dreadful paths do people tread when they become resentful, arrogant and vengeful? Dr. Peterson journeys broadly, discussing discipline, freedom, adventure and responsibility, distilling the world's wisdom into 12 practical and profound rules for life. 12 Rules for Life shatters the modern commonplaces of science, faith and human nature, while transforming and ennobling the mind and spirit of its readers.

One reason so many people are attracted to what he says is because the things he says are rarely heard. One rule I found rather interesting was rule 5.) Do not let your children do anything that makes you dislike them. As nowadays, folks seem to not operate within that mind frame. Even if you are not a fan of Mr. Peterson politically. This book is great.

Dr. Peterson would be a joke if his followers weren't so scary
You can clean your room without subscribing to the vomitous mass of pseudoscience and plain old unparseable nonsense this dolt spews.
